• Robert DeLeon: if they raise fees, some users, particularly junior and senior golfers, "would suffer."

    Suffer? Is it really suffering to pay the actual cost for something, especially for a luxury. They're relying on the City to keep their costs artificially low at our expense. We have to suffer these lapses in reason on a weekly basis. The City should've taught the course a lesson in cold economics and turned them down.

  • It seems that the "glorified student council" had just received head pat from the Country Club elites.

  • Louie and bighorn
    There is not a lot of fat on Riversides payroll. They were going to try having one guy cut the grass on 27 greens, then rake all the bunkers, then unload all the carts from the shed, then empty all the garbage cans, then clean all the carts, mow the fairways, change the holes on the greens. then weed eat around the 1500 trees, and in his spare time wait on customers.

    They decided to hire a few more people.

    Thats not all of the actual day to day activities.

  • bighorn>>> got to agree with ya on that, buddy !! it seems to me that there may simply be too many people on the payroll out there. most of the time when i go inside, there are two people not working and one person back in the office, acting like he's working; unless one considers reading, working crosswords, texting, and holding a phone to his ear as actual work...a lot of fat on this payroll....

  • Cronyism at it's finest. Riverside Golf Course is run by the non-employed members for their friends and buddies. Holding their personal costs down is their only goal. And our Council is more than happy to subsidize them.

    Has Armstrong ever said "no" to any spending request?
